Day after tomorrow. All those people. I'm starting to get a little apprehensive. You see, there's this thing about blogging and making comments. Not that I've been disingenuous - what you see is what you get, with me - but when you blog - when you make comments - you THINK. About what you say ... about how you say it ... you consider your statements and responses.
Live and in color, I don't know that the pathway between brain and mouth is long enough - there is no brief stop in the 'thought' processing center. No chance to stop the 'inappropriate', the 'unkind', the 'less than sympathetic' from spilling out and falling on other ears to God knows what impact and impression.
I think I'll just smile, shake hands, hug where appropriate and nod my head.
Each step I take, each minute that passes, brings me closer to picking up my first passenger on Thursday morning. If I can manage that without issue, in the afternoon First Passenger and I will return to the airport to pick up two more passengers and deliver them to their hotel. From that time onward there will be parties and meetups and all kinds of opportunities to do and say things wrong.
On the other hand ... maybe ... just maybe, I'll do and say everything just right. Maybe I will meet and make new friends. Maybe I will do some rubbin' up on people and leave good feelings and impressions behind me.
Maybe. I sure do hope so.
Do you think I should wear a dress?
